    You forgot to put that Witchdoctors have the strongest AoE powers(mojo storm), and a lot of them that doesn't go with just damage(reduces spell power by 50%[witchdoctors will be useless if you stack them], greatly reduces critical strike rating[more than privy can increase], and the one you mentioned, leech).

    Buccaneers don't get First Strike or Relentless. Only Swashbucklers have access to First Strike, and no class has access to Relentless. The closest thing to Relentless anyone can get is Follow Through from the Axe of the Minotaur Lords.

    No, Witchdoctors don't have the strongest AoE powers. That belongs to Musketeers, the actual AoE oriented class (even then Buccaneers have Reckless Frenzy).

    Almost all powers require a stabby/melee weapon
    That's not a problem when you're a melee class and their powers.

    Much less AoE powers(Area of Effect)
    AoE powers only affect adjacent targets
    Swashbucklers have an average amount of AoE effects. A total of 5 which is only 3 less than Witchdoctors.
    Again, the fact that their powers require them to be close to the enemy isn't a liability.

    Barricades to halt enemies
    Barricade is used to block the opponent's line of sight, not halt them.

    Elusive(+25% dodge and +1 movement range when -50% health)
    The other ranks?

    Low dodge(not needed if you have high health/armor)
    Buccaneers have average dodge and do not naturally learn either Relentless or First Strike.

    Caster(Slashy/Staffy)- Make use of high will and have your secondary class be Witchdoctor, utilizing the pros of both classes.
    Hybrid(Slashy/Shooty)- Mix between musketeer and privateer. Have secondary be musketeer. Have AoE/Ranged powers, but eliminate the inability to survive close range of the musketeer.
    This really goes for any class, not just Privateers.

    As for some cons for them, how about they lack offense and are very reliant on their companions to deal damage.

    Can fizzle(automatic miss)
    Fizzling is the same thing as dodge and block, just a different name. Fizzling occurs when an AoE basic attack fails (They don't miss because they don't take accuracy or dodge into consideration. AoE basic attacks have a base 75% chance of hitting when targeting one or more enemies).

    Another con for Witchdoctors would be their low Accuracy.

    Witchdoctors have access to relentless, but it's useless since it doesn't chain to our powers.

    You're right; I forgot about Mojo Echo because of how rarely my Witch triggers it. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Swashbuckler Con: Normally swashbucklers have a considerably low accuracy. Same goes for Witchdoctors.
    Witchdoctors have access to relentless, but with a different name. It is called Mojo Echo. Another epic available to Witchdoctors is Mojo Rising, which works in the same way that Bladestorm works.

    And by relentless, I think he meant blade storm.
